With “Game of Thrones” George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. In a world of dozens of characters that is no small feat. Ser Davos Seaworth is known for his brusque demeanor and straightforward nature.

Davos is known as the "Onion Knight." He is loyal to Stannis Baratheon, although he does not follow orders blindly. Ser Davos appears on the HBO show “Game of Thrones” and is played by Liam Cunningham. Ser Davos' fingers were cut off, on orders from Stannis, as a payment for his past crimes as a smuggler.
